Subject: God Rest Ye, Merry, Gentlemen
Happy the man who is sooooo wrong! I have been listening to the shows here, ( Thank You, Tapers! ), and first off - the quality for aud tapes is amazing! Astounding efforts, lads!
But most of all - The Lads with Mr. Haynes as a PART OF not just as a Hired Hand are sounding more like themselves than they have in many years stretching back into the late 80's.
Are things yes a bit loose? Yes! Thank God! Are they still learning things and how to better play with eachother? Yes! Thank God! Do they still occasionally forget the words? Yes! Thank God!
Like Phil once said, "Warts n' all!"
The Dead are playing like themselves the way everyone remembers in the memories of their best and most favoured shows. The Lads are now a BAND and not a carny act. LISTEN to them. There are moments when they are scary good!
Gone is the animous, the fretful pain of heresy, the dirge like tones and lifelessness.
This is now truly, "The Dead", and this is the band and the tour that will finally, gratefully, reverently, let Jerry go, with tears and thanks, and look forward to this moment without the rearview mirror, eyes on the road ahead, so many roads ahead.
I listened to Golden Road from Worchester and felt the tears of joy that true release brings.
I would be pretty darn grateful if Mr. Haynes finds himself compelled to choose to accept permanent membership in the band as the lead guitarist.
We will always have Jerry and the '74 shows, the epic tail end of '72 shows, the ragin' 77's and the brief shining moments of '89 -'90.
And now we have been given a gift, the gift to say good bye, good bye with thanks and without wistfullness and to embrace the new era. Long may they run.
Subject: Why the negativity?
I was at opening day on Easter in Greensboro and all I can say is that the whole vibe was great it actually reminded me of 87 Tour. The cops and security didn't hassle or bust anyone they just let us all be and get our groove on even let us camp over night in the lot and party it up.
As far as the Band is concerned the show was smoking from start to finish and they were as tight as I have ever seen the Grateful Dead even back in the day! By far one of the best shows I have ever attended and could ask for anything better my expectations after seeing them in 2004 were surpassed by leaps and bounds. The mere fact that these guys are ndeed almost 70 years old and still jamming is a blessing all in itself chill out all of you and stop being such kill Joys and enjoy the Music and festivities it might not happen again!
Subject: Thanks Tapers
Subject: Fairly mediocre??
These guys have been playing together practically since the Beatles were on the Ed Sullivan show (yes I know that was 1964 before the Warlocks started).
The fact that they are ALIVE and PLAYING this music for us is a gift. A blessing in so so many ways. The music could have died with Jerry. But it didn't. There was Further for a couple of years. We almost lost Phil. Then The Other Ones, and now The Dead (again) after 45 years of playing music that has meant more to so many people than you could possible imagine.
I soak every note of it in. If you can't appreciate what we have here, I feel sorry for you...
Subject: you said it!
glad to hear someone's got their back.
ECSTATIC to hear the boys one more time around!
can't wait for our turn to groove along at the Spectrum May2nd!
Subject: Fuck all you haters!!!
4 stars because this is actually happening!!!
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile...
Subject: The misicianship is still clearly there.....
Warren brings an interesting element. He's more clued in then last time around.
Subject: Thanks for the opportunity to hear the show!
Subject: dancin in the streets
i miss my boys....thank you for posting
Subject: THANK YOU TAPERS!!!!
As for the Dead... I am super impressed with Warren this tour. He has done his homework this time =) Peggy-O is the highlight of the recording for me.
Thank you again to the band and God Bless the taper community!
